Bold and complex blend of Negroamaro and Primitivo. Flavours of blackberry, prune, cinnamon, dark chocolate and raisins
This is a powerful and well developed blend of two great Southern Italian grapes: Negroamaro and Primitivo (which is also known as Zinfandel). Grown on old vines ranging from 45 to 50 years of age, the grapes are picked by hand in September. After fermentation, the wine is aged for three months in French oak to gain hints of vanilla and chocolate. This is a fine wine with the potential to age and improve for six or seven years. Enjoy it now, or cellar for later.
Tasting notes: Deep ruby colour. On the nose, Le Camarde offers an overwhelming aroma of liquorice, sweet juicy prunes and Amsterdam pipe tobacco. This is complimented by notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, cloves, white pepper and dried Rosemary spice. In the mouth, the wine is dry, with smooth velvety tannins. It has medium acidity. Each sip tastes like blackberry, liquorice, prunes and sweet tobacco, leading into a long finish.
